I am participating in the Moving Day Atlanta walk, first and foremost, for my best friend, the love of my life, my husband Larry and, secondly, because it's benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation which does research and offers many support services to educate and improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson's disease and their families.
As a recipient of a portion of the NPF's Moving Day 2013 grant awards, PD Gladiators--a nonprofit Larry and I co-founded with others--is promoting many exercise classes (16 classes in total so far) for people with Parkinson's AND their Care Partners throughout the Metro Atlanta area. We are grateful for the NPF's support and want to help them deliver other great programs to help people live better with PD in the coming years.
This exciting event will take place Saturday, November 1st, 2014 at the Centennial Olympic Park (Downtown Atlanta). It will be a fun filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities.
PLEASE come celebrate the importance of movement in our lives by joining the PD Gladiators team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved too.
Get up, come out to join us and keep fighting!
